A reconstruction by G. W. Ireland On Tuesday evenings for more than a quarter of a century there gathered in the flat of Stephane Mallarme a group of young writers and artists: many of them were later to rival in fame the Master himself. This reconstruction is of an imaginary evening in the 1890s. Arthur Symons (Frank Duncan ); Mallarme (Marius Goring ); Paul Valery (
Allan McClelland ); Paul Claudel (Derek Smith ); Andre Gide (Richard Hart ); Pierre Louys (David Peel); Henri de Regnier (Gabriel Wool!)- Francis Viele-Griffin (Guy Ktngsley Poynter); Claude Debussy (Wilham Squire);

3—The Solid Stateby A. R. Ubbelohde , r.R.s.
Professor of Thermodynamics
Imperial College, London
Few branches of science have developed more rapidly during the past few year, than that concerned with the physics of the solid state. Not only has new insight into the constitution of matter been obtained but important technical applications have resulted-to mention only transistors and thermoelectric devices.

Roy FULLER introduces the work of 1 poet, still living, but now almost totally neglected.
Edgell Rickword , who edited The
Calendar of Modern Letters in the 1920s, has written virtually no poetry since 1931. This programme includes readings from two major poems, Terminology and In Sight of Chaos, ' both of which,' says Mr. Fuller, 'seem subitantial and unduplicated contributions to the verse of our time.'

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
